Teachers' hopes of better pay lie in the hands of 5 judges

07 October 2015, 09:33 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Court of Appeal will decide November whether the 50/60% pay-rise afforded to teachers is legitimate.

After listening to submissions from lawyers representing the government as well as teachers unions, the 5 judge bench stated that it would sit for just under one month to deliberate on the ruling and come up with a decision.

Judges Festus Azangalala, Philomena Mwilu, Erastus Githinji, Martha Koome and Otieno Odek will come up with a ruling November 6 over the matter.

The government has argued that it has simply no money to pay teachers, while teachers believe that there are means of getting the money but the government has simply refused to play ball.

Attorney General Githu Muigai defended the stance taken by the government and said that talk of money being readily available but not being handed to teachers is fiction.

" Any such talk is misguided and lacking in fact," he stated.

On the other hand, teachers unions lawyer Paul Muite stated that there were several instances when the government had spent on things that could have been avoided.

" For instance, the KES 1.3 billion sent to pay off the Anglo Leasing debt could have been put to better use," he added.

The 5 week teachers strike is currently on hold for 90 days after another ruling in the Industrial Court asked them to suspend their strike to pave way for negotiations.

By the next month, teachers will know whether they will have something to fight for or not.
